This is a library of perfboard and single-sided PCB effect layouts for guitar and bass. I'm not an electrical engineer by any stretch of the imagination, just a DIY'er who likes drawing layouts. It is meant for the hobbyist (so commercial use of any of these layout is not allowed without permission) and as a way to give back to the online DIY community.

Earthquaker Devices Palisades

The mother of all TS808 derivatives/variants, the Palisades incorporates just about every mod to the classic Tube Screamer circuit. Two rotary switches control the bass response (Bandwidth) and clipping (Voice), one toggle bypasses the input buffer while the other is a bright switch, a footswitch selects between 2 separate gain pots, and with an added boost section to round it all off. All 5 pots are board mounted, but there will still be a good bit of off board wiring. Schematic can be found over on FSB. It's laid out for a 1790NS enclosure just like the original.

And because I'm sure the off board wiring isn't the clearest, here's a full wiring diagram:

Hopefully that clarifies any questions and doesn't raise more... haha!


  1. this is crazy man, Thanks for sharing

  2. I finally got around to this one. It sounds great. Lots of tones to experiment with. Verified!

    1. No issues with the Boost? Some people have been saying they have been having issues with the boost only going to unity. I am going to make this soon...
